NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: It's a new year and there are plenty of new electronic gadgets out there that manufacturers hope will become must-haves for discriminating customers. But in a moment, we are going to be talking about new gadgets and why that might be stressing you out.
But right now, gadget guy Ed Curran, never to be stressed by a new gadget, has been looking into all the latest at Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.
ED CURRAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT: They have all kinds of TVs: big TVs and little TVs and projection TVs. Here is a neat, new camera. And what's nice about this is that this has a brand new type of protocol built into it, which means that when you shoot your pictures on this wonderful 3.3 megapixel camera, you can download them to any computer, even one that does not have the supplied software with it. This it the latest Street Pilot. It goes with you anywhere.
COMPUTER: Two-point-three miles, turn left.
CURRAN: Satellite radio becomes a reality this year with two companies, XM and Sirius broadcasting direct from satellite to your car. Now, here is something that is an organizer and so much more. It's the eBookMan. You can read eBooks right off the screen here. You can also use it as an organizer and store all your information in here. It will play back MP3 audio. It will play back audio books.
For $100, when your phone rings, Taz lets you know.
ALLEN: Is that what you want at home?
